“CLM has been supporting me for about 15 years with work as varied as share-farming agreements and converting farm buildings into offices. I rely on them mostly for strategic advice, where they add real value to my business. They’ve also opened the door on grant funding. It’s a fantastic relationship and the person I deal with most has become a friend. He’s really made the effort to get to know my family and our aspirations, which is a sign of a really top-class consultant.”
